Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of Americanah and We Should All Be Feminists comes a powerful new statement about feminism today - written as a letter to a friend.
I have some suggestions for how to raise Chizalum. But remember that you might do all the things I suggest, and she will still turn out to be different from what you hoped, because sometimes life just does its thing. What matters is that you try.
In We Should All be Feminists, her eloquently argued and much admired essay of 2014, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie proposed that if we want a fairer world we need to raise our sons and daughters differently. Here, in this remarkable new book, Adichie replies by letter to a friend's request for help on how to bring up her newborn baby girl as a feminist. With its 15 pieces of practical advice, it goes right to the heart of sexual politics in the 21st century.

Critic Reviews

Praise for Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie:
"The book I'd press into the hands of girls and boys, as an inspiration for a future 'world of happier men and happier women who are truer to themselves'." (Books of the Year, Independent)
"A writer with a great deal to say." ( The Times)
"Here is a new writer endowed with the gift of ancient storytellers." (Chinua Achebe)
"Adiche [has] virtuosity, boundless empathy and searing social acuity." (Dave Eggers)
"Adichie is terrific on human interactions.... Adichie's writing always has an elegant shimmer to it.... Wise, entertaining and unendingly perceptive." ( Independent on Sunday)
"[Adichie] is recording the history of her country. She is fortunate - and we, her readers, are even luckier." (Edmund White)

Just one thing missing

It was a bit disappointing as a Nigerian to listen to this particular book being read by an American woman who made little to no episode to pronounce names or places correctly but otherwise content wise and the tone and pace of the reading was excellent

Love the advice

Love, love love this book. I will be revisiting it each year and passing on the lessons to my daughters. My only comment with the audible version is that I wish they had found a narrator with a more Nigerian accent.

A must-listen for every human

Fantastic. Specific examples of how all people can live with equality for all. (Because feminism is, of course, about equality for women and men.)

I definitely recommend it.
